Man from Maryland jailed for child porn sentence

Charges for child pornography can lead to jail time and fines, and you may face unwanted scrutiny at work or at home. You aren't guilty of a crime until you're convicted, and it's important that you remember that you have every right to see a defense that can protect you from a bias in the courts. Your case could be similar to this one that took place in Maryland.

In the news, one man in Maryland has been sentenced to over five years in prison for having child pornography on his computer. He allegedly shared it over file-sharing software, distributing it to others who could also, potentially, see fines or imprisonment in the future. The 35-year-old man allegedly pleaded guilty to the crime after sharing the filed with an undercover officer on two occasions between September 2012 and March 013.

He settled on a plea agreement, according to the news. That plea agreement reportedly states that after his computer and digital items were seized, there were 277 images and 296 videos of the sexual abuse of children found. After his prison sentence, he will have to have 25 years of supervised release and must register as a sex offender.

In another case that was reportedly unrelated, a 54-year-old man from Dundalk was arrested on charges of child pornography. He was charged for three counts for the possession of child porn, and investigators have revealed that the evidence is over a year old. The man now has to appear in front of the Baltimore County Court commissioner, and if he's convicted for this alleged crime, he could face up to 15 years in prison.
